Nerds & Nerdettes

Happy Monday Everyone!!


How was everyone's weekend?
I wanted to apologize for disappearing Friday and not visiting your blogs.
I was plagued with some God awful stomach virus.
I'll spare you all the horrid details and continue with today's post.


***************************


This past weekend I was listening to a local radio show.
The host of the show kept gushing on and on about different "sexy" celebrities.
Each and every celebrity she brought up seemed to fall under the same category:  Nerd.
That's not said in a derogatory way, it's simply an observation.  Besides, I'm a little nerd myself!


Being the self proclaimed yapper that I am, I had to investigate further.
Yes, that means I harassed all my close friends and family for their idea of a sexy nerd.
I wracked my poor brain for every well known nerd I could think of.
I came down to one resounding hypothesis.
Nerds are in.


They have brains, good looks, and usually chic style.
They think before they speak and are socially awkward in a good way.
Hey, Big Bang Theory is overwhelmingly popular for a reason!  The people love a dose of dork!


The Nerd Test:


Madre and I's all time favorite show goes first...
The Winchester Brothers from Supernatural.


Dean Winchester
Bad Boy
Played by Jensen Ackles
Very macho, super sexy, and Madre's pick.



VERSUS

Sam Winchester
Nerd
Played by Jared Padalecki
Super smart, self proclaimed dork, and Jax's pick.  Yum!!!



Next up are the Nerdettes.


The ladies from The Secret Circle.


Faye Chamberlain
Bad Girl
Played by Phoebe Tonkin
Powerful, witty, and dangerously sexy.  This is Madre's pick.




VERSUS


Diana Meade
Nerd
Played by Shelley Hennig
Beautiful, socially awkward, with brains and a rocking bod.  This is Jax's pick.






Do you think Nerds are in?

  1. I'm a certified nerd and it's never been cool. Or if it is now, I'm too old for it to help me out. Speaking as a true nerd, I like Dean better than Sam. Sam is so troubled, sensitive and well, dull. Dean he's a mess and I like that in a man. I have no idea who the girls in the photo's are. I'm a little behind the times Jax. I'm old, I'm an old nerd!

    1. how can you be old, when you're only 35, dahling? :)

      Delete
    2. @Anne...Certified nerds are ok! We have brains AND beauty. You like Dean better? For shame...now I have to give Madre a point. hahahaha Excuse me while I go drool over Sam... :)

      @Dez...She's not old. She's perfect!! :)

    3. Thanks you guys for the compliment. I like my men a bit rough around the edges. Sam is handsome I agree. But Dean does it for me. Okay I'm rhyming on your page and it's that cats fault.

      Delete
    4. Rough around the edges does it for me too, but look at Sam's hair!!!! Yum!!!

      I blame the cat for many things. No worries! hahaha

      Delete
  2. Yep, i think they're in. I'd probably pick the nerds in that case, too...

    1. Oh, I can't wait to tell Madre! One point for me!! :)

  3. As a proud nerd, I approve this message. Why do people hate nerds anyway? They may be socially awkward but they can give you social network to pick up chicks. Just don't get close to them, they may bite.

    1. Proud nerds unite!!!!! :)

      hahahahaha We bite? Ok, I'll plead the fifth on that one. LOL!!

  4. I don't know any of these folks or these shows 'cause I'm old as the hills but I always went for the nerdy type. Smart has always been sexy to me and NEVAH goes outta style. Oh and those boys sure are HOT!!!!

    1. I had the most beautiful boy friend. He really was perfect in every way when it came to looks. I could only stand him for a few months. Dumbest guy I ever met...That's when I realized that nerds are so much more sttractive ;)

      Of course you're a sexy nerd! Work it girl ;) hahaha

    3. You're very welcome!! lol

  6. I've always thought nerds had a certain appeal! You've picked some gorgeous nerds...all four of them!

    1. Yes, it wasn't a fun experience. My Godson knocked out 4 of my family members with that virus! Babies...lol

  7. Jensen and Padalecki are hardly nerds, darling, but I get what you were aiming at. Real adorkable nerds are Topher Grace, John Krasinki, Adam Brody etc. That's actually my favourite human species :) WIsh I could catch me one.

    1. You read it wrong silly. I was talking about their characters, and Dean was the bad boy ;) Nerd or not nerd, their pictures are always welcome. Yum!!!!

      I need to look up your nerd choices. I haven't heard of them, but I'm open to new men to fawn over! :)

      Delete
    2. you haven't heard of my fave nerds? Bring me some smelling salts immediately :)
      I've even had a poll called IT'S CHIC TO BE GEEK a few years ago :)
      http://hollywood-spy.blogspot.com/2010/10/topher-grace-is-hollywood-spys.html

      Krasinski is Emily Blunt's hubs and they are the cutest couple that ever lived. Topher and Adam both dated gorgeous Teresa Palmer :)

      Delete
    3. I have not!! But, I looked them up and I may have to agree. I'm convince. Nerds are way hotter than the bad boy ;) Well, in some cases. LOL I'm swooning Dez!!!

      Delete
    4. @ Jax - I just started watching reruns of The Big Bang Theory and love it! Also, glad you're feeling better too =)

      @Dez - Thanks for the link, cut and pasting now baby!!

      Delete
    5. Topher is sexy Dez. Brody is my favorite of the guys you listed. He has those eyes that seem to say so much and his cheekbones are to die for.

      Jax, I'm glad you've now got the reply buttons on your page. It's now easy to come and play at your page.

      Delete
    6. @Elsie...Ohh, well now that you're watching it I really need to get on it ;) haha

      @Anne...I like it too!! I love to play :) LOL

  8. Nerds are so in. I love the Big Bang and Sheldon Cooper!

    1. Sheldon Cooper? Oh I need to google him!!! Mom would love you. Big Bang Theory is her new favorite show. I haven't gotten into it yet.

  10. Glad you are feeling better Jax.

    Nerds are in? I sure hope so. Not that I resemble that label or anything.

    1. Thanks, Slam!

      Nerds are in!! I swear they are!!! :)

      Delete
  11. Pffft I'm a big nerd, in more ways than one, so yes nerds are in. And if the nerds turn out to look like Meade, I'm some glad they are..haha

    Nerds have sure changed since the Revenge of the Nerds movies, that I will say. In that they were all stereo typical ones with goofy glasses and picked their nose..hahaha

    Still like Dean better, never going to change my mind on that..LMAO...I guess I only like female nerds..hahaha

    Replies
    1. LOL Another self proclaimed nerd?? Looks like I have more nerd visitors on here than I thought!! lol

      I've never seen Revenge of the Nerds!!! Maybe I should now, but if they pick their nose, I don't think I will. Ewwww!!!! And the goofy glasses are so in style now!! lol

      Sam is superior!!!!!! Look at his poofy, beautiful head of hair!! I bet he uses coconut shampoo ;) hahahahaha

      Delete
    2. LOL I think anyone who blogs has some nerd in them in some way or another. I just admit to being a bigger one than most at times. Gerard might not like that too...hahaha

      hahaha it's just one guy who picks his nose, his nickname is Booger, go figure..haha...only watch the first one though the other three pretty much suck. Right, you can keep the goofy glasses, will never go that nerd..haha

      I bet he does too hahaha...but Dean isn't as whiny. So Dean wins. Unless you count soul less Sam, then he might win.

      Delete
    3. LOL Are you stereotyping bloggers as nerds?? For shame!!! hahahahaha What Gerard doesn't like is your obvious man crush on Dean!! He may have let it slide for Sam, but Dean? No...lol

      Delete
    4. Tough luck, Dean is the cat's pick. Unless you count his smallville stint then the cat just wants to pick Bobby and be done with it..haha Me? Stereotype? Never! But if you look closely many seem to be some kind of nerd and have some type of ocd or quirk..haha

      Delete
  12. Nerds are definitely in. And as far as The Secret Circle, well, everyone is attractive. Diana is great, but personally I'm a Melissa fan. She flirts with Faye's mischievous side, but never afraid to stand up for herself.

    Don't forget The Vampire Diaries! *yahhhh*

    1. You think so? All the ladies are clearly gorgeous, but, my favorite is Cassie. Why is she my favorite? Because she's a little shorter than me and I LOVE that!!!!

      As far as the boys goes, Adam does have something about him, but I don't find him that good looking. And we all know how much I LOVE Jake. Yum!!!!

      Vampire Diaires? Hollaaaa :) lol

  13. I just read an article in fact that said the same thing you are arguing. The article said women's tastes are shifting away from the macho alpha-males in favor of nerds (for lack of a better word). The article claimed it had something to do with the recession. I didn't quite understand their logic. Anyway, if nerds are in, I certainly have not been benefiting. I probably am just way too nerdy. There are limits to this sort of thing, I suppose.

    1. Oh, it's true!!! Nerds are so in!! Good looking, quirky, and smart is in. Smoking hot and dumb is OUT. lol Embrace your nerd and make it work ;) I'm telling, there is no limit. Have you seen the obsene nerdism in Big Bang Theory??? lol

  14. Yay for nerds! I hope you're feeling better soon.

  24. I think nerds are always in! but I must say that the nerds I'm familiar with look nothing like that! :) haha, really though. I dont' watch either of those shows so I can't tell you which one I like more! But, Mark Ruffalo is always kinda nerdy in everything and I think he's really, really attractive... and I love the Ross Geller always :) and he's the biggest nerd around.

    1. Mark Ruffalo? Oh, I need to look him up!! Ross? Oh, yessss!!! I forgot about him. Hopefully he could forgive me. He really is nerd #1 and super adorkable :) Did I just say adorkable? It seemed fitting...

  25. I think that they are just casting hunky guys and gorgeous girls to play all roles.

    That being said, nerds are always a-ok in my book!!
